I have 3 dogs. They range in age from 5 years to 1 year. They are not house broken and it is driving me nuts. What can I do now?
I have been reading the many letters you receive and your answers, but now I would like to ask you this, I have three dogs a 5 year old female mixed terrier, and two year old jack russel and a one year on son to both. I crate them together and I still do not have housebroken dogs. I fenced in a area specially for them and they will come in and do their business on my rug. They refuse to go out when it is raining which makes it worse. I seem to understand from your responses that I should also crate them after I bring them in and not let them be in my house at all except for the kitchen. I got them for companionship and love having them watch tv with me and sleep with me but I am getting that I should not be doing that? I am really at fault here and at my wits end as my husband is ready to divorce me I have broken two carpet machines already and working on my third. I can no longer stand cleaning up after them and I cant get the smell out of my carpet. Any help and advice you give me would be taken and greatly appreciated. I really am at my wits end. HELP!
You are correct – this is 100% a owner problem and not a dog problem.
I assume each dog has its own dog crate. These dogs should NEVER be loose in your home and out of your sight. If they pee or poop in front of you they need serious obedience training with a PRONG COLLAR. In that case you need my Basic Dog Obedience DVD. This teaches your dog that some things are RIGHT and some are WRONG. It will also teach you about corrections
These dogs need to go back to square on house training. Just like a puppy. They must live in a crate or be on leash in the house. I explain this in detail on my web site.
If you allow these dogs to sleep with you – well shame on you.
